When we painted a house in Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire

Once upon a time……. well, not actually that long ago, we painted a house in the potteries, namely the historic city of Stoke on Trent, in Staffordshire.

It was one of the larger homes in the typical streets of Hanley, small terraced homes, but due to the size of this, it was probably a kiln managers house as it was bigger than the rest.

It had been painted loads of times before but something needed to be done to stop the rising costs of having it painted each year.

There is a major drawback with masonry paint, and that is ability to last more than about 12 to 18 months before it needs to be done again although your average Stoke decorator won’t tell you that as he wants to see you again next year.

In the case of a large house like this, with the additional expense of scaffolding, and you could be looking at spending a small fortune over a 15 year period in keeping the house freshly painted.

There is a solution to this and despite the fancy website (ED: Thank you!) our prices are surprisingly LOW for such high quality, long life painting!

In fact so confident are we of our everyday LOW prices that if you can find cheaper from another Textured coating company, we will refund the difference and beat that quote!

An approved Exterior wall coating

The special exterior wall coatings system we used on this particular job was fully approved by the BBA and building regulations and has been used by us, from the same factory too, since 1986 so we KNOW the product works and we KNOW that when we say this wall coating will NOT fade, crack, chip or peel, we KNOW it won’t! A typical, spray applied exterior wall coating, will lasts upwards of 25 years, so it is going to be the year 2028 before this home needs painting again!

So what did this house look life before we started?

The fa├žade of this house in Stoke on Trent needed some serious attention before we could apply our external wall coverings to the house.

There was a problem with various frost-damaged bricks, flaky paint and general damage by the weather. In addition the painted-on mock tudor beams didn’t look great and the owner wanted them gone and to be frank with you, they did look a little bit out of character anyway!

We got to work repairing the damaged areas and then started to mask up the windows to apply the special primer for exterior wall coatings.

Once the walls had had the repairs done, the windows were protected and all the primer had been painted on, then we got our special spray machine out, mixed the paint and then sprayed on a thick coat of Andura textured masonry coating.

And the house now looks like this!
